“We’ve got probably over 60 sponsors that participate, just in this segment of the rodeo. There’s lots of sponsors that also participate in the premium sale the ag mechanics, but these are the people that have paid to have seats and participate in the Coliseum, and will have title nights that go to Shannon – Coors – Republic – Pendleton. Ram Rodeo all the way through, and down we have some sponsors here that are local sponsors.” said Tom Thompson, Marketing Director of S.A.S.S.A.R.
